The revised physician oath is a modern successor to the Hippocratic Oath for physicians around the world which has been approved by the World Medical Association in 2017. It reflects changes over the decades in the relationships between physicians and their patients and between physicians themselves. The WMA Declaration is intended to cover the collection, storage and use of identifiable data and biological material beyond the individual care of patients. In concordance with the Declaration of Helsinki, it provides additional ethical principles for their use in Health Databases and Biobanks which can accelerate the improvement in the understanding of health, diseases, and the effectiveness, efficiency, safety and quality of preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic interventions.
 
Organized by: The Center for the Study of International Medical Policies and Practices, and co-sponsored by the Policy Studies Organization, the American Public University System, and the World Medical and Health Policy Journal.
